Donald Trump is sounding very odd, for the eve of the New Hampshire primary: He’s trying to sound conciliatory, and undo some of the most horrendous statements he’s made during this campaign.

During a TV appearance Monday, Trump fired back at a comment Jeb Bush made over the weekend, slamming The Donald for having called a war hero like John McCain a “loser.”

“Well, it just shows you how they lie. Number one, I never called John McCain a loser, as you know,” Trump insisted. “I like John McCain, I supported John McCain.”

But then, even his explanation of what he “really” said just showed off his true thoughts: “I said he was a hero because he got caught — which is true, to a certain extent. And I said he was a hero because he got caught, if you remember — I didn’t call him a loser.”

And of course, he’s done all of that.

Trump famously insulted McCain this past July for having been a prisoner of war: “He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero ’cause he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured, okay? I hate to tell you.”

And as CBS News also points out, The Donald indeed said at that same event that he thought less of McCain after the 2008 election: “I don’t like losers.”

However, Trump did continue with some further comments that are undeniably true — about Jeb Bush.

“You look at Jeb — Jeb’s a loser. He spent $110 million so far, he’s at the bottom of the pack or toward the bottom of the pack. He’s going nowhere, and the only thing he does is attack me. That’s the only — he thinks if he attacks me, that’s gonna show he’s tough. But every time he attacks me, he melts like butter.”

And that’s The Donald’s secret to political success: Whenever he’s in any kind of trouble, he can always fall back on pummeling Jeb. It works every time.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Just over year before her untimely death on Friday, the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appeared as a guest lecturer for the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock, AR with National Public Radio correspondent Nina Totenberg. The crowd that signed up to see "Notorious RBG" live was so large that the event had to be moved to a major sports arena – and they weren't disappointed by the wide-ranging, hour-long interview.

Witty, charming, brilliant, principled, Ginsburg represented the very best of American liberalism and modern feminism. Listen to her and you'll feel even more deeply what former President Bill Clinton says in his poignant introduction: "Only one of us in this room appointed her…but all of us hope that she will stay on that court forever."
